2949540 - Db2 NLS database not in sync


The Db2 NLS (Near-Line Storage) connection test works fine.  However when you run the NLS Check in Dbacockpit the following message is reported:
    "<database SID> database must be rolled forward to time stamp YYYY-MM-DD-HH.MM.SS.mmmmm"

Additionally,  you execute the NLS check function module 'FM_RSDA_DB6_SYNC_CHECKER'  using tcode SE37, which reports a similar message:
    "Database <database SID> - RESTORE, restore database to specified timestamp YYYY-MM-DD-HH.MM.SS.mmmmm"

These messages indicate that the Db2 BW and NLS database data are not synchronized with one another and are in an inconsistent state.
